There has been some controversy over Broadway theater actor Audra McDonald thanking her parents for choosing to prescribe theatre instead of ritalin for their hyper-active youngster back in the 70s before ADHD was truly understood the way it is now.

since my own “coming out” I’ve searched for women of color who could relate to the struggles I endured growing up, and endured them to become their best selves. The closest I came to was Solange Knowles; and she’s got some growing to do. All kidding aside, I just wanted to share Ms. McDonald’s story with you. She is definitely my new Shero!
